Other than a one-month display of Jongers works in 1906 at the Oehme Galleries in NYC, this painting has never before been on public display and was awarded the 'Place of Honor' at the Oehme Galleries in 1906. Following that brief display, the painting hung in the Guggenheim NYC residence until 1926 when it was gifted by Mrs. Guggenheim to a private institution in Virginia where it remained in storage for the next 93 years.
Alphonse Jongers, born 1872 in France, was one of the Lyme art colony's charter members. He moved to French Canada in 1895 where he opened a studio in Montreal before moving to New York City. Jongers played an important role in the early "Barbizon" years of the Lyme art colony and his works are represented in the National Portrait Gallery, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Collection of Fine Arts, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. He was a member of the Society of American Artists and was elected an Associate of the National Academy of Design in 1906. Jongers returned to Montreal in 1924, where he was successful enough to be called "one of Canada's leading portrait painters." Two years after his death in 1945, a memorial exhibition of his work was held at the Montreal Art Association.
